Extavia Medication Information

Extavia® (interferon beta-1b) is an injected medication approved to treat multiple sclerosis (MS). This prescription drug is used every other day, and is only approved for use in adults. Typically, a person will start with a small dose and slowly work up to the full amount. Weakness, headache, and injection site reactions are some of the most common side effects of Extavia.
 
Before starting Extavia, review the medication's safety information with your healthcare provider. This MS drug is not suitable for everyone, so tell your healthcare provider about all your current medications and any medical conditions you have, such as liver disease, anemia, or depression. This will help ensure your safety and reduce your risk of complications.
